- Windows version LiveSuit
To flash A10 devices with LiveSuit, first you need to let the device go to FEL mode.
Execute LiveSuit.exe and click SelectImg button to select the LiveSuit images you have. Connect your devices to PC with a USB cable. If Windows ask you to install driver, select the driver in the LiveSuit program UsbDriver folder.
mkdir cubie; cd cubie git clone https://github.com/matson-hall/allwinner-pack-tools.git cd allwinner-pack-tools git checkout cubieboard cp tools/Livesuit-linux.zip <destination> cd <destination> unzip Livesuit-linux.zip cd LiveSuit_For_Linux64 chmod +x Livesuit.run ./Livesuit.run
Unsupported distribution notes
As expected, the LiveSuit.run is a 60 lines shellscript followed by an tar.bz2 archive. You can extract it manually as such:
tail -n +60 LiveSuit.run > LiveSuite.tar.bz2
In the tarball there's 2 things, the livesuite itself and a special USB driver in the form of either an RPM or a DEB package. rpmunpack or dpkg -x somepackage.deb can be used to extract the package.
Next, change into the extracted source to usr/src/awdev-0.1 and type make. If there are errors, (I had some) they need to be fixed.
For one, err() has finally died! (according to [gkh on g+].).
For it is
fixed upstream somewhere over on [github].
